Fraud…..you probably think it couldn’t happen in your organization. But when you read in the newspaper about an incidence of embezzlement at a local nonprofit, you realize there might be more you could do to safeguard your organization. We’ve put together a great panel of experts to share tips and stories to enlighten us all.

This Lunch & Learn webinar will help identify and address vulnerabilities to internal fraud, educate on internal controls, and assist management in achieving fiscal responsibility and deterrence. Hear real-life examples of how fraud is most-often discovered, and learn more about the legal ramifications of embezzlement and other types of fraud. Our Fraud Prevention presenters include Carol Leibinger-Healey of Adelson & Company PC, Kim Baker of Toole Insurance Agency, and representatives from the criminal division of the MA District Attorney’s Office.
